A law I can get behind

8 Jan

31 films.  That’s how many Elvis acted in.  And I’ve seen every one of them.   While there are better films (King Creole and Jailhouse Rock to name two), I have a soft spot for Girl Happy.  And part of the reason is because of the song “Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.”  It could be – and probably is – a song that many could make fun of, but there is something about it that gets in my head and stays there for the entire length of spring break.

Seriously, who can’t get behind lyrics like these:

Any male in Fort Lauderdale

who is not pursuing a cute female

will automatically land in jail.

That’s the law in Fort Lauderdale.

So, happy 76th birthday, Elvis.  I know you’re still alive and celebrating.  I’m sure you’d be cool with me sharing the download here.
